Make God Bigger

Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together (Psalm 34:3 NKJV).

One day, back when I was in university, my professor projected an image of a small black dot in the middle of a very big white screen. He asked us, “What do you see?”

Every student immediately responded to his question, “A black dot.” He paused, and then asked again, “What do you see?” 

When we gave the same reply, he told us that he saw a huge white space. While we saw a small black dot, he saw something far bigger. It had been there all along, but each one of us had missed it.

I share this story with you because the truth is we often see what our eyes are trained to see, and it takes effort and time to train them otherwise. How often do we focus on the small things in life instead of the big God that we serve? We can have twenty great things happening in our lives, but when one thing does not go right, we lose sight of the twenty and focus on the one little black dot.

This is why we must always decide to make God bigger than anything else in our lives. The more we focus on Him, the smaller the dots will become!
